On Saturday, the Colorado State Rams women's volleyball team will host the highest-ranked opponent to come to Fort Collins since BYU came in ranked No. 1 in 1993: the No. 2 UCLA Bruins. UCLA lost its opener to now-No. 1 Nebraska, but that's been their only loss of the season. Their six victories this season have included nationally-ranked programs such as Hawaii and Pepperdine.
Colorado State have won all seven of their home matches this season, but they've dropped all three that they've played on the road. The Rams are currently riding a 16-match home winning streak, good for the fifth longest streak in the program's history.
The Bruins have one of the nation's best defenses, they currently sit third in the nation in blocks. CSU is also a top defensive team, sitting just behind UCLA in blocks per set at fifth in the nation.
The last time the Rams and Bruins faced in 2000, CSU notched their only victory of the seven times the schools have played. UCLA have come to Fort Collins twice in the past, and have won both times.
The match is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. MT, and anyone attending is encouraged to wear white.
